Applications in Nanotechnology to Boost Opportunities for ALD Equipment Market

In the last few years, the use of atomic layer deposition has significantly increased in nanotechnology. The recent technological advancements in the ALD technology in terms of scalability, performance, and reliability have made this possible. With the advent of more advanced technologies, the usage of ALD equipment as manipulation and fabrication tools in nanotechnology is expected to accelerate. Furthermore, the sales of ALD equipment are poised to surge due to the rising demand for less time consuming and effective semiconductor equipment manufacturing process.

However, the process of ALD is very time consuming, which indirectly acts as a growth suppressant for the ALD equipment sales. The stringent export control regulations are also expected to create bottlenecks for the market. Besides this, the high initial investment required for ALD equipment and the lack of skilled workforce also inhibit the growth in ALD equipment sales to an extent.

Nevertheless, the increasing applications of ALD in semiconductor and electronics and energy devices is expected to keep the demand for ALD equipment high in the forthcoming years. The increasing research and development on atomic layer deposition technologies is projected to boost opportunities for the ALD equipment market. The market is also expected to significantly gain from the increasing application of atomic layer deposition in power devices and energy storage devices.
